  • How to grow a flower.

    Published 07/05/21, by Sara Lindley

    Our book this week is not a story! It is a Non -Fiction book all about growing a sunflower.

    We will be looking at all of the information contained in this book and planting our very own sunflower seeds this week. We have some seeds donated by parents and the gardening club members that help to keep our school looking so good. Thank You! Some of the seeds donated were collected from sunflowers grown last year..... just like they say in this book.

    The reason we look at these books and learn songs all about planting seeds is to help develop the children's knowledge and understanding of the world around them by learning about growth and plant lifecycles. Last week singing the story was a really successful way to get the children to remember the different stages so here is another lovely song that includes lots of the signing when we have been learning all about seeds and flowers growing.

  • Errol's garden

    Published 23/04/21, by Sara Lindley

    Here is the author of our story this week - Errol's garden. She recorded herself during lockdown and shared the story she had written with everyone.

    Our set 1 phonics sounds this week are to be to introduce or reinforce the letters 'e' 'g' and 'm' as we will be seeing these a lot in our story and nursery rhyme. We often use Evie and Dodge to introduce and reinforce the set 1 sounds as it helps the children to learn how to do "my turn, your turn' as they do it with dodge. We follow it up with an alphabet song from cbeebies too.

    Our set 2 sounds this week will be looking closely at the two different ways the double oo sounds.                      eg look at Errol's roof garden! a short 'oo' and a long 'oo'.

    Other useful links for songs and videos about each digraph - short oo song, short oo phonics lesson, long oo song, long oo phonics lesson

  • Super Easter Eggs!

    Published 26/03/21, by Sara Lindley

    As we draw our topic to a close during our last week we will be thinking about Easter.

    We will be revisiting all of the stories we have read over the past five weeks to see what the children can recall.

    We will be seeing if the children can remember their super sounds. So there is no particular letter of the week this week. Instead we will be going on an Easter egg letter hunt to revisit and reinforce lots of their sounds.

  • More real life Superheroes and a superdaisy!!!!

    Published 13/03/21, by Sara Lindley

    This week the author himself will read our book of the week. We always like to use videos of real authors as they know exactly how they want their story to be read because they were the ones who wrote it! So here is the well known children's author Nick Sharratt reading one of his Daisy stories. This time she is SUPER DAISY!

    We will be continuing to learn about real life superheroes to this week and we are going to watch a video all about being a police officer. The video gives the children a better insight into all of the different roles of a police officer- not just arresting bad guys. Our aim is to help the children enter into their own role play situations with a better chance of not getting themselves into a bit of bother! We will be leading their play for a short while so that we can show them how to make good choices when playing independently. Click here if you would like to watch the video with your child too.
